Our bodies are made up of between 55-60% water, so it’s imperative that we’re drinking enough h2o. But plain old water can get boring to drink, which is why fresh fruit infused water recipes are kind of a godsend.
Water infused with fresh fruit is a natural, healthy way to improve the taste of water without adding any nasty chemicals or sugars. Additionally, it helps to avoid the temptation to reach for a can of soda because fresh fruit infused water is so darn delicious and naturally sweet!
How to Naturally Flavor Water
The best and most convenient way to naturally flavor water is by using a fresh fruit infused water bottle.
Fruit infuser water bottles are a convenient way to flavor water naturally and have delicious, healthy fruit infused water handy all day. I love this infusion water bottle because it has so many features that I’ve been unable to find in other infusion water bottles (and trust me, I’ve tried quite a few!)
In addition to being BPA-free, it includes a handy neoprene sleeve to keep your water cold, an infuser that extend the entire length of the bottle, a safety latch so you don’t spill water everywhere and it fits into any normal sized cup holder (if you’re a mom, you know how annoying it is when you can’t fit your drink the stroller cup holder!) It also comes with a ebook featuring 25 fresh fruit infused water recipes!
